Doctors' Estimates of the Percentage of Patients Whose Problems Do Not Require Medical Attention
Gough, H. G.
Medical Education, 11, 6, 380-4, Nov 77
Answers from a survey of 248 doctors ranged from zero to 90 percent, with a mean of 20.61 percent. The estimates were related to doctors' own performance as pre-medical and medical students, and to personal qualities and dispositions as indicated by psychological assessment. Characteristics of doctors with higher estimates are discussed. (Author/LBH)
